The Saint Francis University Sociology and Criminal Justice Department provided me with the knowledge and skills that are essential to succeed in graduate school. The sociology and criminal justice faculty made my four years of educational experience at Saint Francis University a very memorable one. The professors were not only sources of knowledge but also mentors, inspirations, and champions to my personal success and academic goals. Because of the high quality of education that I received from Saint Francis University, I found myself more than prepared. My major helped me move to the front of my graduate classes, because I already have a deep understanding and knowledge of the material. The Sociology Department has truly helped me to "Reach Higher and Go Far."
I work as an Intake Probation Officer at Warren County Juvenile Court. I am responsible for three different caseloads-all juveniles on House Arrest, Electric Monitoring-House Arrest (GPS), and Compliance.I assign juveniles to probation officer case loads, and complete the intake process with all juveniles and their parents after court hearings.

I am currently attending Villanova University pursuing a Masters Degree and my licensure in Clinical mental health counseling.
After graduating from Villanova University, I plan on obtaining a career in my field as a clinical mental health counselor.
I attended SFU initially for the Psychology program but after taking a few electives in sociology, I wanted to double major. The professors really made it possible for me to double major and were supportive of me pursuing my interests. I graduated from SFU with a double major in psychology and sociology and a minor in criminal justice. The sociology and criminal justice courses I took at SFU were helpful in my acceptance into graduate school. Having an extensive background in related fields, my coursework made me a competitive graduate school candidate.

I never intended on going to a large school. Once i visited Saint Francis I felt at home, and the campus is beautiful. Plus, criminal justice program here is very good.
What I like about the CJ program here is that we have the chance to learn all aspects fo the the justice system: corrections, government, criminal investigation, and the history of criminal justice.

I have been on the Dean's list and have been on the NCAA honor roll every single semester. I am also a member of S.A.M, which stands for student-athlete mentor.
I was awarded a full 5 year scholarship to play basketball at Saint Francis. I chose Saint Francis because of its good reputation and the small size of the university. I like the close-knit interaction between students and professors.
I like the variety of courses that are offered in the sociology program. Also, I like how involved the professors are with the students and their willingness to help.
I plan to attend graduate school and then find a job within a school setting. I want to help students in either the high school or college level. I hope to move back to the Philadelphia area where I feel my background at Saint Francis could be utilized best.
